Old Swan Health Centre develop website as part of the GP Website Project
This innovative new website, designed as part of the GP Website Project, aims to give the local community information about the services that the practice offers and the members of the practice who strive to bring you those services.
The website brings together a comprehensive list of services offered by the practice with times and booking information. It also provides full contact details and interactive maps provided by Google, so a patient can plan and print out directions, find information on bus routes and plan journeys through the Merseytravel website. The site also provides information on out of hours services, local walk in centres and NHS Direct.
The site provides health information on various conditions such as Heart Disease, Diabetes and Asthma, with links to local and national sites, as well as online leaflets about the conditions written from a patient perspective. The site groups health websites into useful subgroups for lifestyle, age and sex and common conditions such as burns, or a sore throat.
The site strives to provide an interactive service to the user, with downloadable and online forms, including the practice leaflet, online messaging and comments boxes. For new patients the site also provides a boundary map and online registration form that can be filled in and printed off by the patient.
Online Appointment Booking & Repeat prescription requests
The practice will soon be offering online appointment booking services, were the patient can register to book their appointments online and request repeat prescriptions. Please contact the practice for when the service will be available.
This innovative website is part of a NHS project by the North Mersey HIS Team, which is affiliated to Liverpool PCT. The aim of the project is to produce websites in accordance with NHS guidelines and aims to provide practices with a professional, easy to follow, patient-focused presence on the internet. If you have any comments regarding this website or would like further information about the project please contact the Project Manager Frank Westhead.
